really liked it
bookshelves: aasia

I read it about a year and a half ago or so. It was before summer.
I went to a book club and it was on that months book. First I did not know what to expect, I wouldn't have come across to reading it myself without no one recomending it. After reading it, I actually started to recomend it to others.
I loved the ways it described skin- how pure it can be, even when it has a shade to it. I even liked how he described the lamps, rooms, the magnificent distinction of vagueness in everything.
Remembering makes me want to reread it.
*read a translated version but did not find it on goodreads.
